We seem to all be suffering a common problem these days, WHERE DID OUR LIVES GO? Our brains seem to still be 18, but our bodies are talking a different language. Sarah Orne Jewett puts it much more eloquently than do I:

“Neither of my companions was troubled by her burden of years. I hoped in my heart that I might be like them as I lived on into age, and then smiled to think that I too was no longer very young. So we always keep the same hearts, though our outer framework fails and shows the touch of time.”

FRENCH TEACHER MRS. DENIGAN PASSES AWAY

 While Mrs. Denigan was not my French teacher, I know for many of you she was a well-loved teacher.  May she rest in peace and love.  Obituary courtesy St. Louis Post Dispatch.

 Mary Margaret Denigan

Denigan, Mary Margaret Died peacefully on February 9, 2016. Daughter of the late Joseph E. and Margaret M. Touhill, she is survived by her two sons, James B. Denigan, Jr. (Sue), and Joseph E. Denigan (Janice). Grandmother to Jennifer Goltermann (Joseph) and Lauren Madras (Andrew) and great-grandmother to Olivia and Katherine Goltermann, brother to Joseph M. Touhill (Blanche). Mary Margaret was an accomplished artist, seamstress and French history student. She graduated from Saint Louis University with a B.A. in English in 1951 and a M.A. in English in 1953. She retired from teaching after 34 years from Kirkwood High School in 1989. She had been a fierce advocate for those in need and undertook service unknown to most. Always the teacher, she had high standards for herself and others, but guarded those unable to serve. She cherished her equally capable granddaughters. Services: Services private. Memorial Mass at Our Lady of Lourdes, 7148 Forsyth Boulevard, University City, Missouri, on Monday, February 15, at 11:00 a.m. Friends will be received at 10:00 a.m. If desired, in lieu of flowers, memorials to St. Louis Public Library Foundation, 1415 Olive Street, St. Louis, Missouri, 63103.
